Last season Adebayor had a fantastic season. He scored plenty of goals and even when he wasn't scoring he at least put in a good shift of grafting for Arsenal's cause.
Players like John Terry and Rio Ferdinand said he was the hardest striker to play against in the Premiership; that is some compliment if you ask me.
This season he seems a shadow of himself. He isn't scoring as much but the worst thing for me is that he isn't grafting and making defenders miserable like we know he can.
He believes he has made it. He has in a financial sense of course but that shouldn't be enough. He should want to improve and become one of the worlds best strikers. He has the potential to do it but does he have the hunger?
He is out for three weeks. This time out could really benefit himself and Arsenal. He needs to get his head straight and rediscover the Ade of old.
It's obvious his head was turned in the summer. He began to believe the hype surrounding him. Maybe it was a mistake to offer him such a well-rewarded contract after just one good season.
What I do know is its time he earned his money. I hope he reflects on his season so far during the period he is out and realises he hasn't been good enough. This time could do him the world of good.
Keep it Goonerish.......
